Florida Woman Protests Utility Bill With Over $500 In Pennies

posted by Harold Mann -

Coins are noisy and heavy compared to cash, and one Florida woman upset about the size of her water bills decided to send a message to the city by paying the $493 total completely in pennies. Dana McCool posted a video to Facebook showing her dropping off 49,300 pennies to pay her city water bill, saying she "just wanted to make a statement." She said city officials told her the high water bills are likely the cause of a leak in her system, but a plumber and a leak detector told her that was not the case. (UPI
